So I have just barely put this system together, and after I am done installing the all the other updates/drivers/bios/everything I go to install drivers for my display devices and the system crashes and goes into a reboot loop when it attempts to do so. I have to boot into safe mode remove said drivers and then I can get back to my desktop. Everything seems to work fine until I install video drivers.  If I am able to get them to install without crashing I am only able to have the system stable on the desktop for a minute or two before it crashes. Below are my system specs:

5960X @ 3ghz stock
Rampage V Extreme (This I bought used off of amazon, but seems to function fine) BIOS 1502
32 GB Ripjaw 2400MHz DDR4 in quad channel (In the red dimms as per the manual)
2 x 295X2 (Both bought new, one is from an old system and it worked fine, the other I bought just recently for the new build both are currently installed and each is power by 2 12v 30amp lines)
1600W Lepa Gold PSU (This was bought used from ebay, seems to work fine)
Boot device is on a 256gb Crucial ssd
1 extra crucial ssd 256gb
2x 1tb seagate 7200rpm in raid 0
Windows 8.1

I figured it out. Thank you for the post though. Appearently I can only use certain slot configurations for my PCI-e ports. SO I did so.
